The Department of Family Medicine joined together to gather donations for this year’s Adopt-A-Family program through UNMC and Nebraska Medicine.
Family Medicine was assigned to a cystic fibrosis patient’s family which included three children (ages 1 year, 3 years, and 8 years) and their grandmother.
Seventeen faculty and staff members raised more than $500 to purchase gifts including grocery gift cards, gas cards, clothing, socks, story books, pajamas, coloring books, and toy cars and trucks.
Instructor, Lili Bronner, MHSA, MBA, spearheaded the efforts within the department.
“The whole project made me reflect about the things this holiday season is for – spreading good tidings, cheer, hope and encouragement to one our many patients who are struggling,” Bronner said.
“Everyone’s ability to give, large or small, made a difference!”
